BlackCat1's Static Shock casting

Casting the Static Shock cartoon that I just recently started watching again on Disney XD...

Virgil/Static Shock - Little J J
He is a high school student in the city of Dakota. As a result of accidental exposure to an experimental mutagen in an event known as the Big Bang, he gained the ability to control and manipulate electromagnetism, and uses these powers to become a superhero named "Static."

Little JJ is perfect for Static Shock because he has the look and is funny.
Little JJ had his on show on Nickelodeon a few years ago called Just Jordan.

Richie/Gear - Max Theriot
Virgil's best friend and confidant. The first person to be clued in on Virgil's powers and a fan of superhero comics, Richie persuades Virgil to become a superhero. At first, he merely provides support for his friend, making gadgets for him and helping to cover for Virgil to protect his secret identity. In the third season, it is revealed Richie's passive exposure to the Bang Gas (assumed through his contact with Virgil) had given him super powers. His power is super-intelligence, which enables him to invent rocket-powered boots and "Backpack", an intelligent multipurpose device capable of surveillance and other semi-independent activity which he wears on his back. With this equipment, he adopts the superhero identity "Gear" and becomes Static's full-time partner in crime-fighting.

Max Theriot was in Kitt Kittredge and The Pacifier

Robert Hawkins - Tyler Perry
A social worker who runs the Freeman Community Center as head counselor, he is a widower and the father of two teenagers. Robert is a caring, understanding, but strict parent. He dislikes gangs and the destructive attitudes of most Bang Babies, and his work at the community center is motivated by a desire to counteract their bad influence on young people.

Tyler Perry is an okay yet funny actor.

Sharon Hawkins - Malika or Khadija Haqq
Virgil's older sister, a strong-willed, annoying, but caring young woman.

Malika and Khadija played in Sky High and ATL

Daisy - Logan Browning
A girl that had attended an academy for the gifted (Vanmoor Institute) in which she met Virgil. After the events involving two of her fellow students as the culprits, she enrolls in the same school as Virgil, Richie and Freida and quickly evolves into Virgil's love interest.

Logan Browning can be seen on Meet the Browns(tv show)

Frieda - Shailene Woodley
Virgil's friend at school and his initial crush. Though lively and popular in school, she tends to be short-tempered and impulsive, earning her the nickname "Hurricane Frieda". She is an active participant and the driving force of the school's newspaper.

Shailene stars on The Secret Life of the American Teenager

Rubberband Man - Lee Thompson Young
Adam Evans is a meta-human whose body structure consists of living rubber, which he can shape into a wide variety of forms, even to the point of altering his physical appearance into that of another person. Adam is also a talented musician who is on the verge of a professional career. His greatest personal weakness is a reading disorder which he has to struggle through. He is the brother of the villainous Bang Baby Ebon.

Lee Thompson Young is mostly known on here for playing Cyborg on Smallville.

Ebon - Michael Ealy
The head of a group of Bang Babies including Shiv and Talon, Ebon is a transmorph; a living shadow and inter-dimensional portal able to hide and become one with shadows, as well as transport others to locations of his choice. Ebon's real name is Ivan Evans and he is Rubber-Band Man's brother.

Michael Ealy was in both Barbershop movies and Their Eyes Were Watching God...he will be in the upcoming movie Takers.

Hotstreak - Sean William Scott
Hot-Streak (Francis Stone/F-Stop) was one of the gang members at the docks when the Big Bang occurred. After being exposed to the gas, Francis Stone became Hot-Streak. His powers added to his hotheadedness by giving him the ability to create and shoot blasts of fire. Hotstreak was one of Static’s very first rivals, giving him a challenge nearly every time they meet.

Sean William Scott was in many movies most notably American Pie as Stiffler.

Talon - Francia Raisa
A teenage girl of Hispanic and Latino Americans Hispanic American heritage, Talon is a meta-human whose exposure to the Big Bang transformed her into a humanoid avian bird, a fact which she was bitter about throughout the series. As a meta-human, Talon had claw-like digits on her hands and talon-like digits on her feet; she was covered in orange feathers, but retained her red hair color. The most notable attribute of her transformation was a set of feathered patagium patagia extending from her scapula to her forearms which enabled her to fly by flapping her arms.

Francia was in Bring It On:All or Nothing and is on The Secret Life of the American Teenager

OMG !!!!! YOU CASTED EXACLTY WHO I WOULD HAVE!!! PERSON FOR PERSON!!!

Except for Hotstreak, Static, i'd of used Cameron Gignandet for Hotstreak, Tahj mowery as Static, but other then that...AHHHHHHHHHh

DUDE!!!!! THERE SO NEEDS TO BE A STATIC SHOCK MOVIE! That show was AWEsome and I always wonder why D.C. doesn't put him more in the lime light. Controlling and manipulating electromagnetism has always been around the top of my list for superpowers to have :)

Nice job. Thumbs up from me. I too had James "Lil JJ" Lewis Jr. in mind as a casting choice for Virgil/Static. Gonna agree with Soul Eater. Cam Gignandet would come across as far more of a menace that Sean William Scott. Still, BIG thumbs up.

Nice job! The only ones I disagree with are Hot Streak and Robert Hawkins. SW. Scott is good, but he's a little too old for the character. As for Tyler Perry, he just doesn't seem like Mr. Hawkins to me. I think I'd prefer Forest Whitaker.
@vRockAWEsome, I think they don't focus on him that much is ause they already have Black Lightning who is very similar and more established. I prefer Static since I was a big fan of the show, but basically Static is to Black Lightning what Patriot is to Captain America.

BLACK CAT @ Quality work!!!

I really like 'em all!

Even LEE THOMPSON coz he's in the SMALLVILLE Universe as CYBORG, so he can do that part easy in the DC movie-verse!

You hit the spot on allof 'em, even though SEAN WILLIAM SCOTT seems a tad old for his part, who cares it'll work and HOLLYWOOD can make him look younger anyways!

Great work again CAT, a HUGE high 5, thumbs up!!!

Forrest seems to husky in voice and mannor to be the cool Mr. Robert Hawkins, and Tyler perry seems perfect to me
Vafrous - 5/23/2010, 4:01 AM
Really well done...I hope this gets made into a movie someday
TheSoulEater - 5/23/2010, 8:31 AM
@BlackCat1 I was planning to do static fan cast myself, but there are so many parts you've alraedy pegged i dont want you to think i'm copying you, is it okay if i put up mine?
Ryden - 5/23/2010, 8:37 AM
Good cast, the only one I'm not keen on is your Static choice....but otherwise it's great.
Blackreverend - 5/23/2010, 3:25 PM
Dude you killed this!!! Nice Job
OmegaBlack13 - 5/23/2010, 6:34 PM
This was awesome! Static mos def should be a movie! Maybe they should follow the comic though...
Loved all your choices. Even Tyler Perry, who I disdain, is a good choice I gotta admit.
Great work man.
superbatspiderman - 5/23/2010, 7:10 PM
Great cast. I would love to see a movie like this.
BlackCat1 - 5/23/2010, 10:51 PM
Thanks again everyone!!! I never thought of using Cam as Hotstreak...that could've worked.

@TheSoulEater go ahead and do the Static Fan Cast lol I missed a few people anyway like She-Bang, The African Spider Hero, the psycho bang baby that turns his hands into purple blades, the telepathic girl with the patches all over her costume,etc
TheSoulEater - 5/24/2010, 2:29 AM
I was actualy gonna include SheBang in mine, thanks
TheSoulEater - 5/24/2010, 2:31 AM
@BlackCat1

Her name was madaline spalding, she was a metal kenetic, and was basicly like magneto if he were a drama queen teen.
LEEE777 - 5/24/2010, 3:48 AM
CAT @ Hmm, CAM as HOTSTREAK is awesome casting as well!!
TheSoulEater - 5/24/2010, 5:53 AM
@Lee thank you Lee
airbeyonder18 - 5/24/2010, 11:21 AM
Havent thought about this in a while. Nice job.
BlackCat1 - 5/24/2010, 1:45 PM
I have someone in mind for Madaline but I'll wait until after SoulEater's fan cast to say who it is so I won't steal his person just in case he's thinking of who I'm thinking of.

And I'm not completely sure of how to list all my fancasts at the bottom of this one so.......you can find a few of them at the top of the page under my profile pic on the left hand side, thanks
Tovonne - 6/26/2010, 3:40 PM
